Holiday Window Box

Lisa and I spent a wonderful day yesterday on Outer Cape Cod. The weather was amazing for December and people were strolling the streets and shopping in the village of Chatham, Massachusetts. This sketch is from a photo that I took of a window box at an information booth all decorated for the holiday. Brightly colored ornaments with fishing net and seashells. It was beautiful and the epitome of Cape Cod. Faber-Castell Pitt pens with Holbein and Mission watercolors in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.

    Really nice painting, the seashells really capture Cape Cod for me. How did you do the white lines….really fantastic

        It works really well, I find gouache to not be that opaque. And you have a steady hand!! 👍👍
